Mother's Day animals

These animal mums were beaming with pride as they posed with their fur babies for an adorable Mother’s Day photo shoot. Photographer Mark Taylor, 53, built up the irresistibly cute collection of photos just in time for the celebration of motherhood on Sunday, May 13. The series captures mums (and a father or two) of various species, including dogs, cats, hedgehogs and ferrets with their playful little ones. (Warren Photographic/Mercury Press)
